Castlegar included on Dr. Hook farewell tour

October 9: The legendary doctor will be at Element Club

Early October will see a chance for locals to say goodbye to Dr. Hook at Element Club Bar Grill.

Legends don’t just breeze through town every day. Well, maybe in a city like Toronto or New York, but not Castlegar.

A date with a legend is coming up at the Element Club, a date not to miss for folks who remember Dr. Hook from his heyday in the 70s. Fans who have muscled their way onto  the Medicine Show bandwagon in the years since Dr. Hook burst onto the scene with a cover of the Rolling Stone will want to secure their tickets for this farewell event.

The miles logged and dates performed over the decades are testaments to the energy and dedication of the Doctor, aka Ray Sawyer, who has maintained a busy touring schedule which has been supported by legions of fans.

According to information gleaned from the Dr. Hook/Ray Sawyer website, sixty gold and platinum records have been earned worldwide by the group. Ray has “gained the confidence of a seasoned entertainer and to this day travels the world with his band.” His son Cayce has been touring with him since he was 13 playing percussion and singing background vocals in the show. Now he is the drummer for the band. Ray has had the honour of being Inducted into the Alabama Music Hall Of Fame” in April 2005.

“They’re big rock singers, they’ve got golden fingers and they’re  loved everywhere they go!”

An in-person opportunity to connect with pop music history is yours to seize at Castlegar’s Element Club Bar Grill on Thursday, October 9.

It’s Dr. Hook’s farewell tour —his only and final B.C. date.    Hear all the classic hits:  Sylvia’s Mother, Freaker’s Ball and so many more.  Join us in giving Ray and company a Kootenay goodbye.  A perfect way to kick off Thanksgiving weekend.
